Kirsty Michel is halfway through an undergraduate degree in International Relations and Sociology at the University of Aberdeen, in Scotland. She is half-Scottish, half-French and was born and raised in Scotland. In 2016 she and her family moved to Houston with the oil industry and have been based here since. She enjoys reading, travelling, being creative and practicing yoga.
At high school and university she had some light introductions to environmental science and environmental issues on a global scale, and has so far enjoyed those topics. She is excited to be interning with CEC this summer, and learning more about the implementation of environmental policy in the Houston area.
